Bride of Ollichon - Lucy
This Manchester beauty came to us with visions of super low backs and a modern day festival bride vibe...
How long have you been together?
By the time we got married, we had been together pretty much bang on seven years.
Who proposed to who?
Rob proposed to me on a long weekend break in Oslo. A freezing cold surprise!
Where did you get married?
We got married in Richmond Registry office in North Yorkshire with just family and best friends, then had a BIG after party in two big tipis in a field on my Dad's farm down the road.
What was your inspiration to go dress-less?
I've never been one to wear long flowing dresses, and I think the only time I have is when I've been a bridesmaid. I tried a couple on, which were beautiful, but I didn't feel very 'me'. I started Googling alternative cool bridal wear and came across House of Ollichon very quickly and there was no looking back (I became a bit obsessed!).
How did you feel in your outfit?
I felt so good in my outfit, loved every second! I felt totally comfortable but still bride-y but with an edge.
Best buy? (doesn't have to be your HoO outfit!)
Oh it goes without saying that my two piece outfit was definitely the best buy. But I also adored my flower crown by Folky Dokey - it just finished everything off perfectly and gave my overall outfit that little extra something.
When Rob's little 3-year-old nephew, Billy, got up with the band and played along with his mini guitar. He was very cute and took it very seriously - a true professional!
Did anything not go to plan?!
I think everything did go to plan - though the whole day is one excited blur really so I doubt I would have noticed.
I think my favourite moment is travelling back from the ceremony with Rob to the tipis - the only half an hour to ourselves, with champagne, before the party commenced.
What did you family and friends think about your outfit?
Everyone loved my outfit, never had so many compliments! Even the people who I thought would be more traditional really, really loved it.
Will you wear it again?
100% I will wear it again - I've been trying already to work out ways to wear each piece separately with other things and also considering dying it another colour.
Testimonial about House of Ollichon
My whole experience with Hannah and House of Ollichon has been amazing from start to finish - I was so excited going to my first appointment I could have burst, and from chatting to Hannah about the kind of thing I imagined, she created my ideal bespoke top, which couldn't have been more perfect and fitted me like a glove. I couldn't recommend the whole experience highly enough and I still keep an eye on the website and on Instagram - the new pieces are gorgeous!!
